had some voter i.d. laws. right? president obama won wisconsin with more than 205,000 votes. that's a lot of people to suppress in order to make a sure romney absolutely would win type situation. don't you think? one of the most outrageous post-election comments about minority voters came from the chairman of the state of maine. their republican party up there. charlie webster, he questioned the mere presence of african-american voters at the polls. >> in some parts of the state, for example, in some parts of rural maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted election day. everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in town knows anybody who's black. how did that happen? we don't know. we're going to find out. >> webster tried to explain himself to talking points memo. "when you see a lot of black people, a lot of people who are black like six or eight or ten people you think, wow, where do they live? that was my point. there's nothing about me that would be discriminatory. i know black people. i play basketball every sunday with a black guy." are you kiddi

they did, income under $30,000 overwhelmingly broke for barak obama. so i don't think the governor's analysis was wrong whereas governor jindal does think it was wrong. i think he's right on the money, mr. salesman. >> i think he lost for a couple different reasons. when the governor was talking about his agenda, it seemed like the campaign strategy was we're not going to like obama because there is 8% unemployment. barak obama gave at least a reason why to vote for him to his supporters, all be it wrong. governor romney -- >> bill: no. the reason wasn't wrong. mr. obama said clearly if you vote for me, i'm gog give you wrong. am i wrong about this? i mean, i think governor jindal is missing the point here. that it's very hard to overcome a voting block that's getting money! >> i certainly think that he's on to something. i think there are a lot of reasons why romney lost this election. but he does get the inner psychology of the obama campaign, was to see themselves as the provider to the people, whether we're talking about young voters or women, providing from college loans to pr

sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> romney says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still ha
it in his pants, therefore, obama must be impeached obviously. >> stephanie: yeah right george bush appointed--yeah that's obama's fault. >> and that eric cantor didn't say anything about that, even though you knew something about it but didn't leave his--never mind. >> stephanie: diane in chicago. hi diane. >> caller: how are you this morning? >> stephanie: good go ahead. >> caller: john mccain has post election syndrome like sometimes it may not hit them until four years later and this is what is happening with him. so you know-- >> stephanie: normally you get too hold to old to hold a grudge? i'm too old to care about anything. >> no, they don't. no, they don't. he's thinking, oh, i should have reacted like this four years ago. let me get them now. >> stephanie: exactly. it gets worse and worse. you think he'll be over this by now. i think i'm--would you love to be a fly on the wall in his living room election night? he's the angriest dog in the world because it further validated obama. it was not a fluke. >> i'm sure he might have even wanted to hit something. >> stephanie: inte
opportunity he has to stick a thumb in barack obama's eye. but jonathan is completely right. he picked the wrong person here. susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi. but look, the republicans are facing an electoral wipeout in the last election. they still want to oppose barack obama any way they can, but what's their excuse? because the american people have now chosen barack obama over the republican guy. so what do they do? they have to gin up a conspiracy, a scandal of some sort, something they can attach the word "gate" to. now it's benghazi-gate. >> ron, you got it. this is the big alternative universal view of their world view in which you don't know what color the sky is over there. but they believe that this is as big as watergate, and although nixon got re-elected in '72, he will come down by '74. even though this guy won in '12, he will come down by '14 because of this big gate ron mentioned. they have it in their head this is big time. >> in 1997 after bill clinton got re-elected but before lewinsky, the republicans tried to do the same thing on chinese fund-raising. rem
curious. it's right after the u.s. elections are over, president obama made a deal, gave israel iron dome and then all of a sudden, there's no incursion into gaza. right after our elections are done, all of a sudden on november 8 a two week lull in violence is broken by israel when they shoot and kill a 12-year-old boy. you might say it's an accident. every time a civilian is killed, israel says it's an accident. there's an awful lot of accidents. then there was a ceasefire and in this case, israel broke the ceasefire by killing jubarek. why did israel start the aggression november 8 and break the ceasefire? >> there have been three ceasefires in the last month all violated by the terror groups. egypt mediated quietly to bring quiet to the region. three times in the last month and there have been 300 rockets fired at israel within the last month from inside gaza. every time we try to reach a ceasefire with hamas, it was violated from their side. we don't want the rocket fire. we'd be crazy to want rocket fire on tel aviv tonight. we have 5 million people under rocket fire from tel aviv to
with john mccain and the way the rest of congress is viewing him on this? >> right. so you've been covering this well in the sense that republicans are not used to the obama administration pushing back. they're not used to the obama coming with a fire in the belly and really confronting them on accusations and insinuations that they've been launching for the last four years without a lot of resistance, without a lot of contradiction. let's remember the politicization of the benghazi issue started with the mitt romney campaign, on the night of the attack. he then harangued the entire republican caucus into joining him on that. now the mitt romney campaign is gone leaving guys like john mccain holding the bag. he's committed to the strategy and has to go forward. now that president obama called him out on public television during a press conference, he has no choice but to double down. and stories like these where he missed the hearing that he was calling for undermine his argument that the obama administration is not giving him enough information. and pushes him back into the argument the ob
that republican congressman call president obama a liar. is he right? >> no. and that is absolutely outrageous, carol. and i think that is what is leading to this kind of protracted and ugly fight, which is exactly what the american people did not want coming out of this election. they wanted their leaders to work together and on something as important as benghazi, i think that every party leader needs to understand that they should dial it down a notch and really feg out what happened here. we're talking about the deaths of four americans. we're talking about an ten intelligence community that is under fire. that should be important to both parties. and ei agree with ron, we need o figure out what the cia knew, what general petraeus knew. it also goes to susan rice, ambassador rice and what she said, which came directly from the talking points that the intelligence community put together for her. so we all need to step back and really work together to figure out what happened here. >> the strange thing, if general petraeus is to blame when he was cia director, he's already gone. you can't exa
. >>> developing now from the white house president obama and congressional leaders right now meeting behind closed doors for negotiations on the so-called fiscal cliff, something that both sides want to avoid but the big question, how much are they willing to give? here's what the president said within the last hour just before the bargaining began. >> our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people's business and what the folks are looking for and i think all of us agree on this is action. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house. give us a brief on the expectations going in -- open minded or closed minded from both sides? >> reporter: well, i think both sides are definitely open minded but that is not to say there aren't huge hurdles that they have to get over in order to come to some sort of deal to avoid the fiscal cliff which of course by all accounts if they cannot do that it could lead the economy back into a recession. there is certainly a lo
conservative media had been saying about this. right? he believed some conservative thing that president obama never used the word terror when he described this attack. when, in fact, the president had. it led to that horrible fact checking moment, live fact checking in the debate. is john mccain, and these guys, dana warbaucher, gene schmidt, trying to make it into a political scandal, are they making the same mistake, they're pursuing a narrative circulating on the right but isn't based in fact? >> i'd add darrell issa on that. he held the hearings on benghazi a month before the election and bungled them. he released documents without even check with anyone. and the bottom line here is there are legitimate questions about the benghazi attack and a lot of information we haven't gotten but that's all become secondary to the sort of political fight between the republicans in congress who want to assert that they still have the control of the foreign policy issue, and they want to assert that obama's weak on foreign policy though the election is over and the actual responsible lawmakers who want
? this is "hardball" for now. "politics nation"ing with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. we are live from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, what winning looks like. president obama ran on fairness, and he's about to deliver. we're already seeing this president standing strong on the key issues that won this election. fairness. i was part of a group that met with him today at the white house. he is not backing down. he knows that making this a more fair country, protecting the middle class, is the central issue of our time he will ran on fighting for a system that works for everyone. where everyone gets a fair shot at the american dream. before our group of civic leaders met with the president, he met with the democratic and republican leaders. they know he has it the upper hand. they know he holds the cards in this fight. with the threat of the fiscal cliff looming, that -- when that happens, you're going to see a winner and a winner who won the national election. the republican leaders even the republican leaders seem to get that today. their words w
that may be right for you. >> governor romney yesterday saying president obama won the election because of gifts the administration promised to black, hispanic and young voters. romney's words got a lot of attention tonight, including from his own party. with me is republican congresswoman mary bono mack. welcome to you. >> thank you. great to be with you. >> what was your reaction, honestly, to what mitt romney was saying there? >> well, my reaction really for all of the elections around the country is it's really time to sort of evaluate what went right and what went wrong. i think we have to do a complete analysis from race to race. i think there's no doubt that we as republicans need to really focus on making sure we offer to the american people something that they understand, that they believe in, and you know, most importantly, that we can express the point that our children and our grandchildren would be better off tomorrow than they were today. i think that mitt romney's analysis of his campaign was his to do but it's important that all of us do the same thing across the country
appreciate to president obama for unequivocal clear sighted support for israel the right to defend itself. >> reporter: days after winning re-election, the president is faced with a widening conflict that has potential to destabilize an already unstable region. so, of course, in the united states and here in the region, everyone is hoping this is over quickly. no one can afford a wider war. >> thank you, christieian for that. >> the israeli military, media office, twitter account, gained 50,000 followers in the past 24 hours. hamas has a facebook page and all playing out on line and on in addition to the violence on the ground. >> hamas threatening israel saying they have opened the gates of hell by assassinating one of their top leaders. all of this began earlier this week. >> we will be back with more right after this. stay with us, everybody. >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our abc stations. >>> as we all know we are >>> as we all know, we are becoming a digital nation. it all begins with books. for too many children, books just aren't a big part of their lives
't constitute a cover-up. what you see so much is the right trying to raise the political price for obama in this, when there's really no there there. we saw some of that with john mccain who has been trying to get to the bottom of benghazi. it's been so important for him, and yet, he skipped the classified hearing about this. why did he skip it? because his office said that he had a previously scheduled engagement. what was that? a press conference where he dissing the president and get answers. really? >> let's put mccain in perspective here, because he's the point man on capitol hill and really insinuating that there's something, you know not on the up and up going on here with the white house. john mccain is acting out of sour grapes here. that defines his career. think back a decade, but john mccain was ever democrat's favorite republican. why? he ran against george w. bush and he lost, and he didn't take the loss well. when george w. bush made president, john mccain didn't miss a single opportunity to stick it to the bush administration. hard to believe now john mccain in 2001 voted
was a mass wave of terror. wr very to learn the lesson, just as the united states and president obama would not imagine to management with -- >> a false camp parson. >> osama bin laden. >> that's a false comparison. >> that's exactly the situation. where you are sitting right now, the lapped of israel is not occupied. the land of israel belongs to the jewish state. >> say that to the 2 million palestinians that occupy it. that's not the point. >> the palestinians have their own land and instead of using it for peaceful entity of their own, they are using it to shoot my own kids. i served in the army, in many combat missions. believe me, i want peace more than anyone. i have no desire to go fight, risk myself and have my kids become orphans. not something i want to do. but faced with a very determine ed radical islamic enemy, we're not going to give in. we'll fight as much as necessary to protect the jewish state. >> but that kind of grandstanding, pompous statement, black and white clap trap doesn't necessarily ensure the long-term safety of the state of israel, something we're all interest
, there is a mutually assured let's cool the rhetoric on that down right now because it is not helpful toward moving toward a deal. but it is a big underlying concern. when president obama goes to asia, in the coming week, a lot of asian nations who are concerned about china's rise are concerned about a sequestration particularly the automatic defense cuts that would take place. it is still a very real concern. there is on some gut level in d.c., a feeling of let's not even talk about this right now. nobody wants this to happen. >> correct me if i'm wrong but don't we have to deal with raising the debt ceiling again before too long. >> let's not talk about that either. there are so many things piling up that either have to happen by the end of the year or would kick in early next year or you know february doesn't seem like that far away, right. so there are a number of things that are in some way daisy chained together as part of these negotiations. >> we're talking to margaret talev, white house correspondent for bloomberg new
